I should make a drug that rapidly binds and inactivates all amphetamine so I can take it late in the afternoon without ruining my sleep quality. This evening sleepiness is killing me.
One sleepy day at a time...
Have to be off antihistamines for a few days and the itching is driving me crazy...

Ok this is weird but I make a snort type noise that can happen at anytime. It's kind of a mix between a snort like when your laughing really hard and a snore like when you snore yourself awake, and it can be very embarrassing. I can be talking to someone and it will happen, nobody has ever said anything, but I catch myself saying oh I just snorted sorry.
Before I was diagnosed I told my Dr I think I have somethin...

LinnaI do something very similar...I will laugh like a nerd....goofy when my husband goes to kiss me i get goofy and snort anf laugh like a nerd....so embarrassing. I did not start this until around last year or so...I think it is definitely neurological and related to N>

Snorting when your laughing is normal, but getting goofy etc.. isn't. Have you asked your Dr. Has anyone said anything to you besides your husband? I think hearing something from people that don't know you says a lot.
My Dr said I'm falling asleep for like a millisecond, I just don't know if I believe that.

Yeah, update, Provigil didn't work. That leaves Adderall IR as the only thing which made even a small impact in the stimulant class. On to other classes of drugs, I guess!
I now count the blessings that having Narcolepsy has brought me and quit asking 'why'.
Trying Provigil for the first time today... not sure if I'm more worried about it not working or getting serious side effects. Fingers crossed that it works, I guess.
Actually managed to stay up until 11 last night and get through a whole movie (fell asleep once but BF woke me up)! Unfortunately I feel like I'm paying for it today.
byebye NUVIGIL!! just got my Quick Start Guide for Xyrem!!!! I AM SO HAPPY. I am finally getting help. Looks like it will be a month before I actually get to take it... but I am so excited! I am ready for improvement. Until then... Concerta... we'll see how that goes.
